El Pintor Tequila Joven
The Tequila Joven is produced in the highlands of Jalisco. After 8 years, the private estate agave is harvested and cooked in an autoclave and then fermented with yeasts that have been used for decades in the hacienda, then twice distilled in a 100 year old copper pot still.
The blanco is blended with an extra añejo that used the same production methods and was then aged 3-4 years in used bourbon barrels and passed through their proprietary filtration system in which they remove most of the color but none of the original organoleptic properties.
Clear with a very mild amber shine. Fruity yet medium to full body and a long spicy oak finish. Delivers a vibrant agave flavor supported by spicy oak nuances.
Agave: 100% Blue Agave
Origin: Jalisco - Los Altos
Grinding: Mechanical mill
Fermentation: Ancestral yeasts
Distillation: Double in a copper pot still
Barrels: American Oak, used bourbon
With the newest release of a blanco tequila, the line of three stands out within its categories by walking the line between craft & luxury, art & science, traditional & innovative production methods.
Created by Maestro Tequilero Guillermo Barroso Arnaud, the brand invokes the dynamic culture of Mexico today: a culture exploding with art and contemporary design but distinctly rooted in a complex history. Every aspect of this line is deliberate, down to the bottle design, which for the Joven is in the shape of an oil paint tube. The blue represents Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul and is “painted” on to the bottle like a paint swatch. The blanco label expands the painter’s palette with a full splash of paint to represent its versatility for sipping neat or creating craft cocktails.
"We want to bring truly exceptional agave spirits, which have a high degree of complexity, to agave lovers everywhere."

El Pintor Blanco is a fantastic go-to tequila when mixing the classics – the earthy elements and minerality of El Pintor will round out your cocktail with that signature tequila kick. Bright citrus notes accent the minerality, and savory notes in your cocktail will pair well with the earthiness.
Neat or Over Ice
Put away the salt and limes, and pour yourself some El Pintor Tequila Joven. You’ll want to taste every flavor note in this tequila, from the fresh, bright pop of agave flavor to the deep, spiced barrel notes at the back of palate.
The briney, peppery notes of the cuishe in the mezcal beg for a plate of oysters, a fresh shrimp cocktail, or your favorite seafood dish.
